Maxim Dim Sum Restaurant @ Taman Pekaka, Penang

Maxim Dim Sum restaurants probably is one of the biggest dim sum group in Penang. They operate their main outlet in Taman Pekaka, and have several outlets spanning across Penang Island - Tai Tong, Max Gourmet in Gurney Plaza, Kuta Bali and Komtar Walk. It has been ages since we last having their dim sum at Taman Pekaka outlet, partly due immense crowd during weekends. We just grew tired of queue for food, especially in the morning! Coincidentally, we had a weekday morning to spare and decided to pop by Maxim Dim Sum for a luscious breakfast. However, some of the dim sum here was somehow uninspiring..

The pictures tell some of the dim sum we had in that morning. We realized the dim sum served here is bigger in portion, i.e. 5 siu mai in a basket. Yam cakes and egg tarts were probably saviour of the morning but the rest, particularly chee cheong fun and har gao definitely need some refinement in terms of taste. Not sure whether was the dim sum have been left too long as we were there around 10am, and we witnessed the chee cheong fun had pool of water on it and the crew has to remove the water prior serving. 

Probably, another visit can only tell the stories.
